    Default ATT member solved 4?

    Here is a post on ATT by a member in Tampa who claims he has Rusful solved. Time will tell.

    I just got off the phone with the St. Petersburg times in Florida.
    I was interviewed over the phone for about 1 hour for my experiances on the hunt.
    Its Ironic because my 11 month of research was ALWAYS based on Rusful, and I stuck with it.
    Im told the article will be posted on the newspapers on line site in a week or so (I gave them a couple hints for all of you)
    Michael will be here in Tampa soon, thats why I recieved the call.
    I tried not to give out to many clues.
    I pretty much have it solved and just waiting to find the time to make the long drive.(I know, everyone says this)
    I had given up on the whole thing thinking that I missed the boat, and everything I have for SOLID info Rusful was just a ploy.
    I made the mistake thinking the hunt was over, I tossed out all my 2 inches of paperwork and book because I understood the hunt was over.
    Now I find myself in the position of trying to find a new copy of the book so I can refresh and see if theres anything Ive missed.

    I'll try to be objective about this.

    I'm not aware of a single instance where someone announced (before having gone to look) that they had determined a token location, and then actually were correct. And I think the reason is that when you know - you KNOW. And then you immediately go get it. A very telling quote was this:

    I pretty much have it solved and just waiting to find the time to make the long drive.(I know, everyone says this)
    Actually everyone does not say that - just the people who are not positive of their solutions!

    Anyhow, if this person is truly certain of his solve and gets the Rusful token, I'm very happy for him. But I also would strongly recommend that those still working on the Rusful token do not stop due to this!

    Default Clue 4

    Steve, I strongly agree. I have not given up on Clue 3 or 4 until I see something on the official ATT site.

    That being said, I KNOW where the Rusful token is. I've already got my plane ticket purchased (I had to purchase the flight 4 weeks from now, to save $50 on the fare).

    Who among us has had a real solution who has thought for a nanosecond that they missed the boat?

    Steve, even you sent me the solution to the butterfly puzzle, knowing that token was near the Nantahala river. When you've got the answer, you know it. I was so convinced that you were right, I drove my family across North Carolina on your behalf!

    When I solved Moscow's puzzle, I knew instantly I had it. You simply cannot give up if you're correct. Any treasure hunter out there worth his salt would do what you did, Steve, and find somebody to go in his stead if he could not get to the treasure himself. That is, IF he had the solution.

    It's not hard to be objective here. Everybody should keep working. This puzzle hasn't been solved at all.

    Not to mention that there have even been multiple instances when someone DID know the correct answer, then drove to the location, and was unable to find the token. And I don't mean the ones where someone else had found it first. Which also raises the point that Clue 3 and 4 might give a location, but it might not be specific enough to find the token without Clue 5!

    But definitely this claim of pre-finding the token is utterly frivolous.

    Default Rusful

    Steve, save your money. Rememember, (you have the photograph) I not only found the token, I took pictures of the jewel. (not) He's beautiful too as I recall. I think we need to see him again to refresh our memories.
    BTW: Glad you're back posting. We missed your imput.

    Egads, I had forgotten that you've already got the jewel!

    (if you haven't seen it yet, there is a picture of benz' Rusful jewel here: http://www.tweleve.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3828

    It's good to be back. It'll be better once I've got that Rusful token in my pocket!
